Hollywood actress supports children's brain injury charity

Joely Richardson visited The Children's Trust and has backed a BBC Radio 4 appeal to help raise money for the charity.

The actress shared afternoon tea with families of children with acquired brain injury during her visit on 26 May. Joely also met and spent time with six-year-old Rhea. Rhea was two when she was involved in a car accident. Her mum was told that she had a 1% chance of survival. However after time in hospital, Rhea was well enough to move to The Children's Trust for rehabilitation. Rhea is home with her family, and continues to make good progress. Commenting on the work of The Children’s Trust, Joely said: “It's a privilege to support The Children's Trust. "A donation of £30 can help pay for a therapy session to help remarkable children like Rhea and maximise their recovery. I hope the BBC Radio 4 Appeal raises lots of money so that The Children's Trust is able to continue helping children like Rhea.”
